Sunflower Bean- New Killer Album, Official Video for "Wall Watcher" New Cut "Easier Said" - New Tour and All Under 21....whew!

Sunflower Bean in all their glory is something any middle aged (wink) blogger would want to be. Under 21, from Brooklyn and part of a kick ass three piece indie rock outfit that kind of sounds like Ty Segall (and his other band Fuzz), the Breeders, Yuck and Avi Buffalo all rolled up into one. Their sonic presence is so engaging. They churn out sounds that are equally proggy and punk and polished and pretty. It appears that Nick Kivlen (Guitar / vocals) and Jacob Farber (drums) got together during their senior year in High School jamming with another bass player who headed off to college. Enter  Julia Cumming (bass / vocals) and, as they say, the rest is history. They are one of those young acts who seemingly gel so well together and just seem to have their shit together (musically speaking). And while I am sure that they doggedly practice like any band, on stage they make it look so effortless like they have been playing together forever.

Sunflower Bean (on Fat Possum Records) are currently touring, have a brand new album called Human Ceremony (12"Vinyl drops on Feb 5th, 2016 via their Bandcamp) and a cool video for Wall Watcher and dropped another song from their album called Easier Said.
